Version 8 has been released.

http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/products/compare_1_ENU.html

based on this it looks like you only need to buy the delexue edition to bet h.264 support :D


o they have a new hot chick as well.

This isn't a free upgrade from v7 right?  They're going to gouge you for more, yes?

Seeing that H.264 is a requirement for our DVB-T HTPC projects I have been working with Cyberlink on something for sometime now - no updates yet, but I will let folks know when - and if - anything comes along.

Does anyone know if we can use the Cyberlink HD264 Pack for WMP instead of buying the full PowerDVD product? Sounds to me like it might just be the H.264 decoder (although the product website gives very little info) which is all that a lot of us need/want right?

V8 has AAC-LATM support? This could mean the end of some of the issues that still seem to occur with the Monogram decoder!

PowerDVD8 appears to be the solution we have all been waiting for! It has AAC-LATM audio support and works great!

sub has already released an initial patch for GB-PVR and I''m sure those people who have had trouble with AAC audio on Media Portal and DVBViewer will probably benefit from this as well due the issues that have been present with loss of audio sync using the Monogram decoder.

Sounds promising - I will be quick to drop cash on this even though I just ponied up for V7 about 5 months ago. Upgrade from ultra/7 to ultra/8 looks to be NZ$78 or so. Be ineterested to see if the bugs get ironed out in GBPVR - looks good right now??

For now you probably just want to leave them as is. The new patch only affects playback of recordings for now, and will for now ignore those settings. For live tv it still needs the monogram decoder, was is working fine for live tv. Prior to this patch and PowerDVD8 it would usually have audio/video sync issues playing back recordings.

When I've got a bit more time available I'll make a patch available to use the Cyberlink audio decoder for live tv also.

Thanks sub: nice work, look forward to the patch to allow powerdvd8 audio to be used.

is there anyway to track the updates you make avaliable without trawling the forum trying to find them?

It might not be clear enough - with that patch the Cyberlink audio decoder is used when you playback a recording. I was just saying that its not currently used in live tv, but we didnt have the audio/video sync issue there so I didnt see the need to match a patch for this yet. I will when I've got more time available though.

Not for these patches relating to DVB-T in NZ. I have a 'survival guide' thread which tracks the important patches (recording problems etc), but I dont post these experimental patches in that thread. I dont want to confuse the 95% of users that arent in New Zealand. All these patches will of course be rolled into the next release though.

Sub, - what's your thoughts on the cyberlink aac decoder - if and when you code it in as an otion for live TV, will it be a more solid overall outcome than with monogram? it seems it might be an easy solution if it works better?
